We were on a quest to see turtles, and we found quite a few here laying around on the beach and rocks. There were a few people in the water, but it didn't look like a great swimming spot. Not a bad walk either way...More

If you know Hawai’i, you’re familiar with this volcanic look. From the ranger station, it’s a 4.5 mile hike around the property. However, a volunteer told us how to find the direct beach access from the marina parking. We walked a few hundred yards to...More
